BBI Suffers Another Blow After Gumbo Eric Exposes This, Says The Following About The Signatures

Building Bridges Initiative has suffered another blow after Gumbo Eric , one of the judges who filed the petition exposed certain information on the number of signatures that were being collected. Responding to some questions, Gumbo revealed that BBI didn't meet the threshold of the signatures which were required, and this prevented it from proceeding to the next step.

He has based his arguments on a petition case of David Waweru, whereby he accused the judges of the high court to have used it to prove that BBI is against the Kenyan constitution. He termed it as outdated content and defended his answer by saying that this was a letter from IEBC to David, and it's irrelevant thus the court should have based its arguments on the relevant articles of the constitution.

"BBI didn't meet the millions of signatures which were being required, and this is the reason why it was unable to proceed to the next step. The high court used David Waweru's petition as one reason to reject BBI, but they should have based their arguments on the relevant information in our constitution. So my lords allow me to say that this content was outdated because it was a letter from IEBC to David in 2016," he said.
